Lian Li launches PC-A70F/A71F Full Tower Chassis
Fully featured aluminum full tower chassis
05 August 2009,
Keelung,Taiwan – Lian Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched the
PC-A70F/71F Full Tower chassis ideal for power users and server systems. The
hair-line brushed all black aluminum chassis features two fans on the front (2x
140mm@1000RPM), and 2x rear 120mm fans @1500RPM. The 7x PCI expansion slots
enable CrossFire and SLI graphic card setups. The chassis front face has either
a door assembly which can open from either side as needed (PC-A71F) or a front
panel which clips off conveniently as needed (PC-A70F). The inlet fans have
filters that are washable. The entire chassis is designed for tool-less
implementation, so installing your hardware and getting your system up and
running is extremely easy. The dimensions stand at 220mm x 590mm x 615mm (W, H,
D) for the PC-A71F, and 220mm x 590mm x 585mm (W, H, D) for the PC-A70F.
The Lian Li patented unique Power Supply Bracket which
allows the PSU to be secured using only the tool-less clasp is very useful to
hold the PSU securely without the need for securing screws. The 10x internal
HDD 3.5” bays have a tool-less bracket and are mounted with rubber grommet
struts to prevent movement and vibration from today’s fast moving and highly
specialized HDD components. The locking mechanism slides into place and secures
all the HDD’s simultaneously. The PCI securing brackets are made of aluminum
and have a special tool-less clip with rubber padding to secure your graphics
and daughter cards with the utmost of ease. The front panel (PC-A71F) and top
panel are easily detachable for access to fans and air filters. The
PC-A70F/A71F chassis are imbued with all the functional and user friendly
design aspects users have come to expect in high quality Lian Li cases.
Lian Li engineers have optimized the airflow to enter from
the front mounted fans, directly cooling the HDD’s and ODD’s and thereafter
refreshing the CPU region. The hot air generated by the CPU and GPU is directly
extracted via the rear 120mm fans. The volume of airflow is more than
sufficient to keep your power rig cool and conveniently silent.
The chassis supports 5x 5.25” Optical drive bays with one
optional 1x 3.5” external and 10 internal 3.5” bays for HDD’s giving ample room
for future expansion. The PC-A70F/A71F full tower chassis support E-ATX,
Micro-ATX or ATX motherboards and has 7 PCI expansion slots, which are well
ventilated with special vented brackets when not in use. The top panel is
removable with the multimedia I/O ports on the top panel consisting of 4x
USB2.0, IEEE1394, ESATA, as well as HD+AC97 Audio.
The classical stylish functional design is the Lian Li goal.
The essence of Lian Li products is the craftsmanship of the engineering.
Intrinsic to the workmanship and quality is the customization which includes a
whole host of optional extras that can be purchased to add more features to an
already feature rich product.
